I made this card yesterday for the Technique Lover's Challenge (TLC116). The challenge was to do a warm up card to get you started and it should take under 15 minutes.
It probably would have taken me about 5-10 minutes if things were going right but I had to do it in 2 sittings, thanks to my kids! How sad is that? LOL!!!
The card is a 3 x 3 tempting turquoise base and I had some of the Petals and Paisleys paper still out from the last card so I cut that to 2 3/4 wide. I then cut it in half and used one side on the top and the other for the bottom. I taped them together first so I could wrap the ribbon around the pattern paper. Then I used So Saffron and Old Olive markers to ink the flower and stamped it on the white and added the So Saffron piece behind and used the ticket corner punch on the Saffron. The Just Because is from Fancy Flexible Phrases and is stamped in Tempting turquoise.
On a side note: For anyone in the swap with my Thursday night class the swap # is 21. I have had a few people ask and there was some confusion on the # but I talked to the "swap hostess" today and she confirmed the #. Can't wait to get the cards on Thursday. Mine are almost done!
